Samantha Sheehan founded POE in 2009 specializing in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Anderson Valley vineyards. The winemaker is Jonathan Keyes, currently an assistant at Outpost Wines working under noted winemaker Thomas Brown.
The 2010 offerings include a Ferrington Vineyard Chardonnay and Angel Camp Vineyard Pinot Noir. My brief encounter with these wines indicates this is a winery to put on your radar.
The wines are sold through the website store and a mailing list.
Articles About POE
2009 POE Angel Camp Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
14.1% alc., 300 cases, $48. Vineyard farmed by noted viticulturist, Paul Ardzrooni.Clones 115, Swan, 2A, Pommard and 667. Aged in 40% new Francois Freres and Remond French oak. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Deep, dark and mysterious with flamboyant aromas of black berries, brewed tea, and oak notes of mocha and vanilla, becoming more vibrant over time in the glass. Full-bodied and very tasty with a luscious and slightly sweet core of black plum and black grape flavors accented by hints of oak and dark chocolate. The impressive depth of fruit is well balanced by acidity and tannins, so it should drink well for several years. Very good. Reviewed June 24, 2012 ARTICLE »
